Carving Front and Side view Blocks - Continued
Been gone for a week at Evert Michigan Carving Roundup. Great time renewing friendships and just plain whittling. Getting back to this Santa, carved from the front view pattern has been difficult. It's a quick whittle, but it still should be better done. Hopefully, you'll see the differences between starting out with a front view and starting out with the side view.
Continue to round off the arms, and whittle some separation between the beard and the chest/arms.
Add some texture to the beard, and begin to taper the bottom of the piece.
This whittle was quick and dirty. For that I apologise. It's not done, but for the purposes that it was included here, it is. It has been so long since I started it, that my attention deficit stuff kicked in....He needs a list in his hands.
